NEWS: 

We had Science Day on Monday 12th November 2019.  Find out what we did below!

 

PARENTS GET INVOLVED:

Are you a doctor, dentist or nurse? Do you work in engineering, design robots or fly a hot air balloon at weekends? If you

have something to show us, or expertise to share, please get in touch with your child’s class teacher.

 

ECO CLUB:

We worked hard in the Autumn Term of 2019.  We supported Earth Strike Day, made recycled fashion and rain gauges and raised £41 at the Christmas Fair to go to the Woodland Trust tree planting scheme.  We are taking a break during the Spring Term and hope to be back in the Summer Term.  Thanks to all our dedicated club members.  Keep spreading the word!
